Birthday Card Class - New Mexico

Well I am hoping to start up another class here in New Mexico and these are the first batch of cards I have done up.  How sad is it that I am at a total loss for getting this kicked off???  I realize it is always pretty painless when you live in area where you have friends and family you can bribe/threaten to come to a class and then drug them into thinking this is the BEST THING EVER, but in a new place where I know virtually no one, ugh!  It is a bit daunting.  Looks like I better concoct up some sort of perfume that will make the crafters follow me like the rats from the Pied Piper!  =)

Even if I don't have anyone coming to the first couple classes, I will still have some cute cute cards!

Fun Purse Cards

This stunning card was BEYOND fun to make!  It is heavy as all get out, but so worth the extra postage.  I just love the way it opens up and was a BIG favorite at the Open House!

Opening Up

Totally open!

Fairy Card

I am sooooo in love with my new fairy card!  Talk about fun to make and I just love the added texture that the Liquid Pearls make.  Can I just say that I totally had Loreena McKennitt's To the Fairies They Draw Near on repeat while I made this card?  =)  It just seemed so appropriate!

I left the inside blank so that way it could be used for anything!  Love, love, love!

Open House and Boutique

The house is ALMOST finished, but even though we still have a lot to do in the back, the front of the house is pretty much finished.  WHICH led me to having my first Open House since I moved to NM 14 months ago.

You can check out some of what we have been doing at our personal blog and as for the Open House, well you can just just stay right here!

Most of the cards
Cute coasters I made

More cuteness

Love the Fairy Card!


I don't really know a lot of people here in Bloomfield, but my Grandma and Papa T came up from Arizona so they could see the new place and check out all of the new cards!   Talk about making my day!

All in all, it went very well and I am most pleased with all of the cards.  Now to get everyone in the mood for classes in New Mexico!
